Question about Hunter 27185 Remote Control
I have installed a Hunter fan and light remote control, Model 27185. It works fine. But (with wall switch on) if I turn the light on with the remote and turn if off at the wall switch, the light does not come back on when I turn it on at the wall switch. I have to turn on the switch and then use the remote to turn on the light. It seems like I should still be able to control the fan light with the wall switch.
It is wired so that you control the light with the remote. You cannot have it both ways. You either control it with the wall switch or the remote. Once you kill the power to the receiver by turning off power at the wall switch, you are only applying power to the receiver when you turn power back on. You are not supplying power to the light. You then must turn on the light with the remote. This is the purpose of a remote fan/light control. You could rewire it to control the light with the switch and only control the fan with the remote if you wish, but as you have it now, it is working correctly.

We just purchased this same remote, and have the same issue. All my other older remote sets (from Hunter) do work both ways. If the instructions that come with the remote state when you turn on the light switch the light will come on. So seems like some other issue.

There is no fused protection in the receiver -- I just had the same problem. When replacing a bulb, somehow the bulb arced in the socket on the fan and blew out the unit. Time to replace the unit. I may put an inline fuse this time for protection.

Do not use the factory default position in either fan. Double check the dip switches, and make sure they are the same for each individual receiver and remote.Different codes for each. Dip switches are the oppsite direction in the remote for some reason?
